The Southern California Sun were an American football team based out of Anaheim, California that played in the World Football League in 1974 and 1975. Their records were 13-7 in 1974 and 7-5 in 1975. Their home stadium was Anaheim Stadium. They were coached by former Rams great and Hall of Famer Tom Fears.

Former USC greats Anthony Davis and Pat Haden played for the Sun in 1975 along with former Oakland Raiders QB Daryle Lamonica, also known as the "Mad Bomber."

The 1975 team produced an incident that became famous in Los Angeles-area broadcast history. On a radio broadcast on KABC, Ed "Superfan" Beiler was promoting an upcoming game between the Sun and the San Antonio Wings, which was a road game for the Sun. At the end of his comments, Beiler said, "And of course, the river, what's the name of the river that goes through...the San Antonio River goes right through the heart of downtown Los Angeles." The blooper would be played repeatedly on Jim Healy's radio programs, first on KLAC, then on KMPC (now KSPN).[citation needed]
